colleague jonathan capehart actually pointed out this week, autopsies are done on dead things. so there you go. joining me now is msnbc contributor and "washington post" opinion writer, jonathan capehart. staff writer for par dor pandor daily, david sirota. you guys generally do pretty well talking to women. let's take it step by step, okay? >> okay. >> all right. here's the thing about women. no matter the message, it's the policies. like, they still just don't seem to get that. if we, you know, if we look at them -- i just want to play something ken blackwell actually said this morn ing. i don't think he got the sensitivity memo, though. >> at the end of the day, republicans don't have a problem working and talking with women. we control 30 of the governorships. we control 26 state houses and -- and senate chambers. you know, we, in fact, know how to speak to women on their policy issues. >> okay. so the message i took away from that was, like, we don't have to know how to talk to women because we're in control. basically. if you look at, jonathan, what's been going on at the state level
in our economy. >> joining me today, "washington post" columnist jonathan capehart, former white house press secretary and founding partner off-almost said founding father -- founding father and partner of inside agency robert gibbs, congressional reporter for buzz feed and political reporter and white house correspondent at the "huffington post" sam stein. we talked a lot about the pizza versus the pizza box. after the gop autopsy, the republican conviction they didn't actually need to change the product they were selling, they just needed to change the marketing. it's unbelievable me, the whole 47% thing clearly has not made a dent. nowhere do you see that in a more pronounced fashion than republican talking points on unemployment. >> largely, if you ask most members of the gop, 47% to them wasn't a gaffe, it's a belief. i heard it in debates i had with people all of last year before the tape was uncovered. i do think, look, this is one of those things that the republicans will either learn this the easy way or the hard way. i remember watching these debates about unemployment insura
york, msnbc political analyst, jonathan alder, and in washington, msnbc analyst and former rnc chairman, michael steele. and who is never grinchly, michael steele. >> no, never. >> in the spirit of the holiday season, i would like you to tell us, as we're 11 or 12 days before the next recess, what have the republican members of congress, other than throwing a lot of shade at healthcare.gov, what have they fliaccomplished 2013? >> not a lot. that's obvious. this congress has done very, very little. there are eight working days left in its year. and, you know, at the end of the day, they're going to have to look back and go to their constituencies and account for that in some manner, i'm sure, going into next cycle. yes, there's been a lot of noise around obama care. and its launch in october. and the failures that float from that. but as you know, joy, i've said from the very beginning of this year that, you know, the party has an opportunity to put some real -- substantive policy on the table to differentiate itself not just rhetorically from this administration, but, you know, and poli
is a political analyst and jonathan capehart is an msnbc contributor. of course, a "washington post" opinion writer. howard, i was really taken with your perception there. i actually missed it because i was so busy trying to prepare myself to follow up. but you hit something in your years of experience, presidents don't talk about what it's like to be me, if you will. >> no, they don't. and they don't do it in public. i mean, i've covered a lot of presidents, chris, and i've gotten to know them pretty upclose. and they are sometimes self-reflective. but usually in private and usually only momentarily. they don't let their guard down very much. but i think in this case in that interview yesterday which i still think was extraordinary, the president was kind of thinking out loud and talking out loud about his situation. let's face it, his poll ratings are down, his number one program is controversial. he's got three years left in a second term he's not sure what he's going to do with. and i think sometimes he wonders how he's going to muster the motivation to muscle through, as he puts it. tha
, "washington post" columnist jonathan capehart, former democratic congressman harold ford, jr. joining us from washington nbc's capitol hill correspondent luke russert. luke, i can't believe i'm saying the words government shut down and debt ceiling debacle once again, my friend. what are the chances that the two waring sides get together to pass a budget deal in the next two weeks? >> well, you'd think it would be good after what happened to congress's approval during the last shutdown fight and argument, especially for house republicans. but as of right now it doesn't necessarily have a very rosey outlook. there's been all this talk that paul ryan, the republican from wisconsin and patty murray, democrat from washington chairing this conference committee will figure out some way to lessen the impact of the sequester. as far as a wide reaching grand bargain, that's not going to happen. now they are trying to figure out, okay, what can we do to replace sequester cuts a lot of democrats and republicans don't like in the pentagon but still make it revenue neutral so republicans don't jump off th
with me is ron allen and joining us is jonathan alter, author and msnbc contributor, and james peterson, professor at lehigh university. jonathan, let me go to you first. you've covered president obama extensively. what kind of mandela influence do you see in him? >> huge influence. as he president said in his statement. he said he would not be who he was without nelson mandela. he followed him from an early age. you may recall when the president was a student at occidental college in california, he took part in anti-apartheid demonstrations. he was a leader on that issue and focused on it. but one of the things that is really striking me tonight is what can americans learn. and american society learn from the example of nelson mandela? i think back to civil rights movement, ghandi with his principle of civil disobedience, that helped to give the movement life. so what is mandela's message? well, today we're hearing even very conservative senators and other figures talking about the spirit of forgiveness that he embody embodied in south africa. my question tonight, rev, is can we import
'm joined by jonathan capehart, and john rosen that will, founder of stop handgun violence. i'll start with you, jonathan capehart. before we discuss the situation, i want the to ask about a joint statement today made by the family of newtown's victims. after thanking people for their kindness and thoughts at this time, they suggested the best way to help on saturday would be to perform an act of charity. i think that's something many people can relate to. and yet there are so many who think this is a time to also think about other collective action, including policy change. >> yes. well, you can understand, if you've met any of the families, the newtown families, you can understand, you know that the pain from a year ago is still very much -- very much present, very much on the surface. and so their desire, one for privacy, and two, for acts of kindness or charity, are understandable. but we also have to understand that there are people out there who have been fighting for gun violence reduction, changes in gun policies that would make it possible for there to be, you know, more safet
, jonathan grub rn, professor of economics. he helped craft the affordable care act, and michael smerconish, an msnbc contributor. michael, i want to start with you. you have been struggling dealing with this affordable care act, trying to get coverage for you and your family. but it sound like you had something of a breakthrough today. >> i have had a horrific experience since october 1st, lawrence. in fact, i remember naively waking up at 5:00 a.m. on the day of the launch, thinking i would go on the site, explore my options, go on the radio and say here they are for my family of five. for eight weeks, could not get any satisfaction online until today. i'm online right now in real time, in fact, i don't think you'll bow able to see it too clearly -- >> hold it up, we'll try. >> all right, there are the 24 plans that are now available for my wife and me and our three sons. our daughter is about to hit 26, so she'll no longer be on the plan, but i can tell you i have 24 plans available to me. i'm in pen pep. we don't even have our own exchange. this via the federal exchange. they range on t
post. a political columnist and progressive activist. jonathan, let's peck up that quote we just played for obama there saying next year we will have some sort of bipartisan plan on voting rights. i took a step back. are we sure it's going to be bipartisan? are we sure there will be meaningful bipartisan plan. everything i have seen tells me there may be a plan next year. i'm hard pressed to see where it's bipartisan. >> we are saying an eternally hopeful, optimistic president who knows full well that whoever, and especially he's for it, is going to be impossible to get age done. the republicans have made it clear on any issue from the bucket, economy, jobs, health care, immigration you name it they will stand in the way of quote giving him a win. they don't want him to succeed. as we know, there have been two books wren that republicans collude before he was inaugurated to insure he would not be successful. so a president's job is to be hopeful and optimistic. that's what the president is being here, but that's not to say that he shouldn't try. because the president, while hopeful and
to be president and how it's changed him. howard fineman is a political analyst and jonathan capehart is an msnbc contributor. howard, i was really taken with your perception there. i actually missed it because i was so busy trying to prepare myself to follow up. but you hit something in your years of experience, presidents don't talk about what it's like to be me, if you will. >> no, they don't. and they don't do it in public. i mean, i've covered a lot of presidents, chris, and i've gotten to know them pretty upclose. and they are sometimes self-reflective. but usually in private and usually only momentarily. they don't let their guard down very much. but i think in this case in that interview yesterday which i still think was extraordinary, the president was kind of thinking out loud and talking out loud about his situation. let's face it, his poll ratings are down, so he's got three years left in a second term he's not sure what he's going to do with. and i think sometimes he wonders how he's going to muster the motivation to muscle through, as he puts it. that's a phrase he uses. but here he
this country with honor. >> ron reagan is a political analyst and jonathan capehart is an msnbc contributor. ron, this sort of old republican thing here about making fun of people because they're unemployed, i think of factory towns where the factory closes. and it's very hard to imagine just pulling up stakes and heading to some other part of the world to get a job. but that's what i guess rand paul thinks they ought to do quick as hell. and the idea the unemployed want to be unemployed is crazy because everybody hates being unemployed. everybody i met hated it except for a short time, nobody wants to watch television all day when they could be an active part of society and proud of themselves. >> well, it's another example that the republicans or particular republicans of being just counterfactual on the one hand. there are no studies that indicate that, you know, if you receive unemployment, you then don't want to work. and from a common sense point of view, how do you imagine that somebody who's already earned an inadequate salary is now going to be satisfied earning half of that money
. coming up next, jonathan strong joins us. >> he has a play. he has the soul. >> soul. . >> pope frances pay have a secret life. rumor is he sneaks out of the vatican at night might be true. the pope dresses in regular priests clothes, goes into rome,ed a ministers to the homeless. he won't confirm this, himself. >> oh my god, he's a vigilante vickar coming to the help of those in need. he's the bat-pope. holy, holy, father nation. it all makes so much sense now. he's just like bruce wane. he's a wealthy bachelor who lives alone in a giant mansion and bruce wane has the batmobile while frances has the popemobile. not only that, batman talks to morgan freeman and the pope talks to god, who is also morgan freeman. >> for example past the hour with us. jonathan strong, good to have you on the show. >> good morning. >> we pecked the must red from your piece in the national review you write this about the feud between senator minority leader mitch mcconnell and the heritage foundation. there are some echoes of the message in your book, joe. in this piece. >> their feud has been one of the mos
legacy, but brat on came up in the policing. i want to go back to one of jonathan's points with the use of numbers to pull people away involved in the turnstiles. that is to use to drive down crime to look at disparities. there is a brand-new movement and the majority of major cities to put together the 50 ever racial profiling and database. that is driven by police chiefs. i think that's the kind of thing if he brings that to new york, that may in fact get it is fears about the taint of giuliani. >> he should be a hash tag. your prominent pronouncement is correct. thank you both. >> thank you. >> stay with us. conservatives have an authority complex in today's top. bl turn to roc® retinol correxion®. one week, fine lines appear to fade. one month, deep wrinkles look smoother. after one year, skin looks ageless. high performance skincare™ only from roc®. take skincare to the next level with new roc® multi correxion® 5 in 1, proven to hydrate dryness, illuminate dullness, lift sagging, diminish the look of dark spots, and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. high performance skincar
getting the go ahead into the world of hillary clinton. jonathan allen and amy parent will be given rare access to clinton insiders for a new book out titled "hrc and the rebirth of hillary clinton." >>> former rnc chairman ed gillespie is considering a run to the senate and considering challenging mark warner next year. republicans have yet to land a top recruit to run against the popular democrat. >>> president obama welcomed recipients of the 36th annual kennedy center honors for the white house. this year's recipients are carlos santana, herbie hancock and billy joel along with martina arroyo and shirley maclaine. >>> that's going to do it for your morning dish of scrambled politics. joining me from washington for our first look at politics is washington post reporter david nakamura. david, good morning. >> hi. >> let's start with joe biden and his trip to asia. i know you were a pool reporter on that so welcome home. >> thank you. good trip. >> what exactly was the vice president able to accomplish? >> well, i think there were two things that really were foremost for the obama admin
reporting by jonathan martin this weekend in the "times." there's hillary clinton asking what you and i would do in the same situation. you're asking somebody to spot the people and who they are in the community. who the state reps, the city council people. you got to know if you want to run for office. >> you have to if you're going to run for president. listen, clintons are good at this. bill clinton is a master at this. you and i remember. we were on the air during the funeral of claretta scott king. >> he didn't say nothing about religion. there's a woman in there. he beat those ministers. it's chilling how good he is. can he bring it back? can he bring back the love? >> well, you know -- >> i think it's there, myself. >> if obama had lost and if that could in some way have been blamed on the clintons even if he got the nomination and lost because they were insufficiently supported or something like that, i think there would be some lingering feelings. but he won. and he won again. and there's no reason to hold a grudge, i think. >> i like to be the sunshine guy around here, joy as
. but have the republicans followed their own advice so far? "washington post" opinion writer jonathan capehart wrote just today, quote, autopsies are done on dead things. every since its march 2013 release, the gop has done everything possible to stay dead. that's pretty tough. michael steele was chairman of the republican party and is now on msnbc political analyst. gentlemen, i want you to look at this. michelle goldberg, by the way is the senior contributing writer for the nation. she's also with us. the gop has had a rough time attracting to the party. said quote, if we want ethnic minority voters to support republicans, we have to engage them and show our sincerity. but republican-led legislatures in over 30 states have enacted some form of voter identification laws on those who vote democratic. it's the most egregious to depress turnout. and it's a strategy unlikely to win over african-american voters, of course. well, this weekend the republican national committee sent out a tweet that may be out of touch. it read, quote, today we remember rosa parks and her role in ending raci
voted for obama care so blame them for your troubles. as jonathan allen writes, if they aren't aware of the law's upside or can't remember it amid the problems with the rollout, democrats will be holding on to a anchor rather than a buoy which leads us back to the presidential pr pitch and peter alexander outside the white house. you just heard the president's speech. do you think the bully pulpit has lost its power at this point? >> reporter: a lot of people who paid attention to the last couple of months for this white house feel they've heard events not too dissimilar to this multiple times. this is the reboot, 3.0. the white house feels strongly this is the time it's going to work. the president made it pretty clear, krystal, you can make fun e
for obama care so blame them for your troubles. as jonathan allen writes, if they aren't aware of the law's upside or can't remember it amid the problems with the rollout, democrats will be holding on to a anchor rather than a buoy which leads us back to the presidential pr pitch and peter alexander outside the white house. you just heard the president's speech. do you think the bully pulpit has lost its power at this point? >> reporter: a lot of people who paid attention to the last couple of months for this white house feel they've heard events not too dissimilar to this multiple times. this is the reboot, 3.0. the white house feels strongly this is the time it's going to work. the president made it pretty clear, krystal, you can make fun of me or kind of give me a hard time or website a hard time but you can't give this law a hard time. what was noticeable was the standing ovation when he said this law, affordable care act is not going to be repeal as long as i'm president and that got everybody on their feet, people who benefit from the law at this time. one of the real focuses is the
acknowledged her role in fighting to end racism. jonathan capehart used the tweet to discuss the ways the gop appears to be out of touch with minorities saying autopsies are done on dead things. ever since its march 2013 release, the gop has done everything possible to stay dead. and it's not just the rnc, republicans in the house held a hearing to examine the constitutionality of the president's aca actions and the "i" word came up. >> we've also talked about the "i" word, impeachment, which again i don't think would get past the senate in the current climate. am i missing anything? >> did republicans forget that president obama was elected with over 90% african-american support and perhaps, just perhaps those voters don't want to hear talk of impeaching america's first african-american black. last night on "hardball" michael steele reacted to the rosa parks' tweet. >> it speaks to the lack of connection and the fact that internally there is no objective oversight. there's no one looking at that with a black voice, if you will, who can say, you know, this is not going -- a, historically inco
. >> what's the attitude. is it grudging accept arranges anger. jonathan bloomberg said it's not as punishing on the surface. there's nothing in jpmorgan's admissions that would be damaging to the company. they can be proud. your reaction to that. >> there's a statement of facts they admit people put bad mortgages into mortgage backed securities. i'm not sure if he read the statement of facts or not. toif say i think jpmorgan was smart. i think history will look well on this as a decision because there is what i've always believed is a a peace premium. the first bank saying we will put this behind us. not just a settlement with my office. this is claims of freddie and fannie, fdic, national strategy from day one. i'm proud of the work i've done together with my colleagues and i think you will see in the next few months other banks coming to the table. i think their reaction is -- the jpmorgan fox figured this out. they understood it's better to bite the bullet and put it bin us. they can go forward. they are a well-run bank and i look for them to get a bump out of this. som
the police are overreaching. jonathan sill says for this case to progress it has to be the boys knew the person was drunk and that they knew the accident would happen. so there's a standard of proof that is very, very high. it would be very difficult for the state to say one of the boys' conduct actually caused the accident. other thing you're a parent, i thought about, how much responsibility is on the shoulder of the parent who some people if they want to be cynical would say why didn't you teach your kid not to overindulge and underage drink, if we're going to go that route of who's responsible. >> i'm not saying it's an easy case but i don't agree with the analogies the way they were presented. i won't say it's an individual with a gun in his hand. to the extent this driver got out and leaves her the keys, he's handing the gun or it's someone who's intoxicated and now going for a swim in the ocean and you're giving them the bathing suit. you're facilitating. the prosecution is saying you're facilitating the process that puts them on this deadly sbiral. i don't know they'll be suc
